Adam Gottlob Oehlenschl ger 14 November 1779 20 January 1850 was a Danish poet and playwright He introduced romanticism into Danish literature.He was born in Vesterbro, then a suburb of Copenhagen, on 14 November 1779 His father, a Schleswiger by birth, was at that time organist, and later became keeper, of the royal palace of Frederiksberg he was a very brisk and cheerful man The poet s mother, on the other hand, who was partly German by extraction, suffered from depression, which afterwards deepened into melancholy madness.Oehlenschl ger and his sister Sofia were allowed their own way throughout their childhood, and were taught nothing, except to read and write, until their twelfth year At the age of nine, Oehlenschl ger began to make fluent verses Three years later, while walking in Frederiksberg Gardens, he attracted the notice of the poet Edvard Storm, and the result of the conversation was that he received a nomination to the college called Posterity s High School, an important institution of which Storm was the principal Storm himself taught the class of Scandinavian mythology, and thus Oehlenschl ger received his earliest bias towards the poetical religion of his ancestors.Oehlenschl ger was confirmed in 1795, and was to have been apprenticed to a tradesman in Copenhagen To his great delight there was a hitch in the preliminaries, and he returned to his father s house He now, in his eighteenth year, suddenly took up study with great zeal, but soon again abandoned his books for the stage, where he was offered a small position In 1797 he made his appearance on the boards in several successive parts, but soon discovered that he possessed no real histrionic talent The brothers rsted, with whom he had formed an intimacy that proved quite profitable to him, persuaded him to quit the stage, and in 1800 he entered the University of Copenhagen as a student He was doomed, however, to disturbance in his studies, first from the death of his mother, next from his inveterate tendency towards poetry, and finally from the First Battle of Copenhagen in April 1801, which, however, inspired a dramatic sketch April the Second 1801 which is the first thing of the kind by Oehlenschl ger that we possess.In the summer of 1802, when Oehlenschl ger had an old Scandinavian romance, as well as a volume of lyrics, in the press, the young Norse philosopher, Henrik Steffens, came back to Copenhagen after a long visit to Schelling in Germany, full of new romantic ideas His lectures at the university, in which Goethe and Schiller were revealed to the Danish public for the first time, created a great sensation Steffens and Oehlenschl ger met one day at Dreier s Club, and after a conversation of sixteen hours the latter went home, suppressed his two coming volumes, and wrote at a sitting his splendid poem Guldhornene, in a manner totally new to Danish literature The result of his new enthusiasm speedily showed itself in a somewhat hasty volume of poems, published in 1803, now chiefly remembered as containing the lovely piece called Sanct Hansaften Spil.The next two years saw the production of several exquisite works, in particular the epic of Thors Reise til Jotunheim, the charming poem in hexameters called Langelandsreisen, and the bewitching piece of fantasy Aladdin 1805 At the age of twenty six, Oehlenschl ger was universally recognised, even by the opponents of the romantic revival, as the leading poet of Denmark He now collected his Poetical Writings in two volumes He found no difficulty in obtaining a grant for foreign travel from the government, and he left his native country for the first time, joining Steffens at Halle in August 1805 Here he wrote the first of his great historical tragedies, Hakon Jarl, which he sent off to Copenhagen, and then proceeded for the winter months to Berlin, where he associated with Humboldt, Fichte, and the leading men of the day, and met Goethe for the first time.
